Production of prostaglandin f2alpha and its metabolite by endometrium and yolk sac placenta in late gestation in the tammar wallaby, Macropus Eugenii. (1/399)

In this study, we investigated production of prostaglandin (PG) F2alpha and its metabolite, PGFM, by uterine tissues from tammar wallabies in late pregnancy. Endometrial explants were prepared from gravid and nongravid uteri of tammars between Day 18 of gestation (primitive streak) and Day 26.5 (term) and were incubated in Ham's F-10 medium supplemented with glutamine and antibiotics for 20 h. PGF2alpha and PGFM in the medium were assayed by specific, validated RIAs. Control tissues (leg muscle) did not produce detectable amounts of either PG. Both gravid and nongravid endometria secreted PGF2alpha, and production increased significantly in both gravid and nongravid uteri towards term. PGFM was produced in small amounts by both gravid and nongravid uteri, and the rate of production did not increase. Neither oxytocin nor dexamethasone stimulated PG production in vitro in any tissue at any stage. Thus, the surge in peripheral plasma PGFM levels seen at parturition may arise from increased uterine PG production, but further study is needed to define what triggers this release.  (+info)

Cortisol in fetal fluids and the fetal adrenal at parturition in the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii). (2/399)

Glucocorticoid hormones may play a critical role in initiating parturition in tammar wallabies. In this study, we investigated the concentration of cortisol in fetal fluids and cortisol production by fetal adrenals over the last 3 days of the 26-day pregnancy and within 24 h postpartum. The fetal adrenals almost doubled in size between Days 24 and 26 of pregnancy, and their cortisol content increased over 10-fold during this period, from 10 pg to over 100 pg per adrenal pair. After birth, neonatal adrenals continued to grow, but cortisol content fell dramatically to 20 pg. The prepartum increase in adrenal cortisol was reflected by a substantial rise in cortisol concentrations in yolk sac fluid, allantoic fluid, and fetal blood, which were below 10 ng/ml on Day 24 and rose to over 40 ng/ml by Day 26. Cortisol concentrations in neonatal blood decreased postpartum, mirroring decreased cortisol content in neonatal adrenals. Cortisol production by the fetal adrenal was stimulated in vitro by ACTH and prostaglandin E2, suggesting that the in vivo increase may be stimulated by release of ACTH from the fetal hypothalamic-pituitary axis and prostaglandin E2 from the placenta. These results indicate that increasing cortisol production by the fetal adrenal is a characteristic of late pregnancy in the tammar wallaby and support the suggestion that fetal cortisol may trigger the initiation of parturition in this marsupial species.  (+info)

Reactivity of the immunoglobulin E in bovine gelatin-sensitive children to gelatins from various animals. (3/399)

It has been reported that most children who showed anaphylaxis to measles, mumps and rubella vaccines containing bovine gelatin as a stabilizer have anti-bovine gelatin IgE. The present study was designed to investigate the reactivity of IgE in bovine gelatin-sensitive children to gelatins from various animals, and the antigenic cross-reactivity between the gelatins. Serum samples taken from 10 children who showed anaphylaxis to vaccines containing bovine gelatin were used in this study. The level of anti-bovine gelatin IgE in these serum samples ranged from 11.0 to 251 Ua/ml. The IgE in most of the children reacted to kangaroo and mouse gelatins, to which they had had little or no exposure as a food or a vaccine stabilizer. The IgE binding to kangaroo and mouse gelatins was completely inhibited by bovine gelatin, whereas reciprocal inhibition was not complete, indicating that antigenic cross-reactivity is present between the mammalian gelatins. Only one child had strong IgE reactivity to fish gelatins, and this reactivity was not inhibited by bovine gelatin, indicating that no antigenic cross-reactivity exists between bovine and fish gelatins. Most of the children who displayed sensitivity to bovine gelatin showed IgE reactivity to other mammalian gelatins. This reactivity may be due primarily to the antigenic cross-reactivity between mammalian gelatins.  (+info)

Kangaroo IGF-II is structurally and functionally similar to the human [Ser29]-IGF-II variant. (4/399)

Kangaroo IGF-II has been purified from western grey kangaroo (Macropus fuliginosus) serum and characterised in a number of in vitro assays. In addition, the complete cDNA sequence of mature IGF-II has been obtained by reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction. Comparison of the kangaroo IGF-II cDNA sequence with known IGF-II sequences from other species revealed that it is very similar to the human variant, [Ser29]-hIGF-II. Both the variant and kangaroo IGF-II contain an insert of nine nucleotides that encode the amino acids Leu-Pro-Gly at the junction of the B and C domains of the mature protein. The deduced kangaroo IGF-II protein sequence also contains three other amino acid changes that are not observed in human IGF-II. These amino acid differences share similarities with the changes described in many of the IGF-IIs reported for non-mammalian species. Characterisation of human IGF-II, kangaroo IGF-II, chicken IGF-II and [Ser29]-hIGF-II in a number of in vitro assays revealed that all four proteins are functionally very similar. No significant differences were observed in the ability of the IGF-IIs to bind to the bovine IGF-II/cation-independent mannose 6-phosphate receptor or to stimulate protein synthesis in rat L6 myoblasts. However, differences were observed in their abilities to bind to IGF-binding proteins (IGFBPs) present in human serum. Kangaroo, chicken and [Ser29]-hIGF-II had lower apparent affinities for human IGFBPs than did human IGF-II. Thus, it appears that the major circulating form of IGF-II in the kangaroo and a minor form of IGF-II found in human serum are structurally and functionally very similar. This suggests that the splice site that generates both the variant and major form of human IGF-II must have evolved after the divergence of marsupials from placental mammals.  (+info)

Acrosome formation during sperm transit through the epididymis in two marsupials, the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) and the brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula). (5/399)

In certain Australian marsupials including the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) and the brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula), formation of the acrosome is not completed in the testis but during a complex differentiation process as spermatozoa pass through the epididymis. Using transmission and scanning electron microscopy this paper defined the process of acrosome formation in the epididymis, providing temporal and spatial information on the striking reorganisation of the acrosomal membranes and matrix and of the overlying sperm surface involved. On leaving the testis wallaby and possum spermatozoa had elongated 'scoop'-shaped acrosomes projecting from the dorsal surface of the head. During passage down the epididymis, this structure condensed into the compact button-like organelle found on ejaculated spermatozoa. This condensation was achieved by a complex process of infolding and fusion of the lateral projections of the 'scoop'. In the head of the epididymis the rims of the lateral scoop projections became shorter and thickened and folded inwards, to eventually meet midway along the longitudinal axis of the acrosome. As spermatozoa passed through the body of the epididymis the lateral projections fused together. Evidence of this fusion of the immature outer acrosomal membrane is the presence of vesicles within the acrosomal matrix which persist even in ejaculated spermatozoa. When spermatozoa have reached the tail of the epididymis the acrosome condenses into its mature form, as a small button-like structure contained within the depression on the anterior end of the nucleus. During the infolding process, the membranes associated with the immature acrosome are either engulfed into the acrosomal matrix (outer acrosomal membrane), or eliminated from the sperm head as tubular membrane elements (cytoplasmic membrane). Thus the surface and organelles of the testicular sperm head are transient structures in those marsupials with posttesticular acrosome formation and this must be taken into consideration in attempts to dissect the cell and molecular biology of fertilisation.  (+info)

Reactivating tammar wallaby blastocysts oxidize fatty acids and amino acids. (6/399)

The tammar wallaby, Macropus eugenii, has a ruminant-like digestive system which may make a significant concentration of amino acids and fatty acids available to the blastocyst via uterine fluids. Fluorescent and radioisotope analyses were performed to determine the rate of glutamine and palmitate use by blastocysts recovered on day 0, 3, 4, 5 and 10 after reactivation induced by removal of pouch young (RPY). Between day 0 and 4 glutamine uptake increased from 15.6 +/- 6.6 to 36.1 +/- 2.7 pmol per embryo h-1 (P < 0.01) and ammonium production increased from 8.2 +/- 4.3 to 26.6 +/- 3.0 pmol per embryo h-1 (P < 0.01). Glutamine oxidation did not increase until day 10 after RPY (P < 0.01), but the percentage of glutamine oxidized increased from 4.5 +/- 3.1% during diapause to 31.2 +/- 12.6% (P < 0.01) by day 5 after RPY and increased further to 51.0 +/- 15.8% (P < 0.01) by day 10 after RPY. Palmitate oxidation also increased from 0.3 +/- 0.1 by day 0 blastocysts to 3.8 +/- 1.7 pmol per embryo h-1 (P < 0.01) by day 4 blastocysts. This increase provides a greater potential for ATP production, possibly to supply increased demand due to the coincident resumption of mitoses. The ATP:ADP ratio within blastocysts had reduced by the time of the first measurement at day 3 (0.5 +/- 0.2 pmol per embryo h-1; P < 0.01) compared with day 0 blastocysts (1.4 +/- 0.3 pmol per embryo h-1). It is likely that metabolism of amino acids and fatty acids contributes to the energy supply during reactivation of tammar wallaby blastocysts after embryonic diapause.  (+info)

Origin of gene overlap: the case of TCP1 and ACAT2. (7/399)

The human acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase 2 gene, ACAT2, codes for a thiolase, an enzyme involved in lipid metabolism. The human T-complex protein 1 gene, TCP1, encodes a molecular chaperone of the chaperonin family. The two genes overlap by their 3'-untranslated regions, their coding sequences being located on opposite DNA strands in a tail-to-tail orientation. To find out how the overlap might have arisen in evolution, the homologous genes of the zebrafish, the African toad, caiman, platypus, opossum, and wallaby were identified. In each species, standard or long polymerase chain reactions were used to determine whether the ACAT2 and TCP1 homologs are closely linked and, if so, whether they overlap. The results reveal that the overlap apparently arose during the transition from therapsid reptiles to mammals and has been retained for >200 million years. Part of the overlapping untranslated region shows remarkable sequence conservation. The overlap presumably arose during the chromosomal rearrangement that brought the two unrelated and previously separated genes together. One or both of the transposed genes found by chance signals that are necessary for the processing of their transcripts to be present on the noncoding strand of the partner gene.  (+info)

3-D organization of ribosomal transcription units after DRB inhibition of RNA polymerase II transcription. (8/399)

In each bead of the nucleolar necklace, using adenosine analog DRB-treated PtK1 cells, we investigated the three components of rDNA transcription, i.e. the gene, transcription factor UBF and transcripts. In situ hybridization revealed the unraveling and 3-D dispersion of most of the rDNA coding sequences within the nucleus. The signals were small, of similar intensity and tandemly organized in the necklace. This observation is compatible with the fact that they might correspond to single gene units. Active transcription was visualized in these units, demonstrating that they were active functional units. Transcript labeling was not similar for each unit, contrary to UBF labeling. UBF and rRNA transcripts were only partially colocalized, as demonstrated by 3-D image analysis and quantification. As visualized by electron microscopy, the necklace was composed of a small fibrillar center partially surrounded by a dense fibrillar component. The 3-D arrangement of this individual unit in the necklace, investigated both by confocal and electron microscopy in the same cells, showed that the individual beads were linked by a dense fibrillar component. The reversibility of this organization after removal of DRB indicated that the beads in the necklace are certainly the elementary functional domain of the nucleolus. In addition, these results lead us to suggest that the organization of a functional domain, presumably corresponding to a single gene, can be studied by in situ approaches.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - A longitudinal study of the protein components of marsupial milk from birth to weaning in the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii). AU - Joss, Janice L.. AU - Molloy, Mark P.. AU - Hinds, Lyn. AU - Deane, Elizabeth. PY - 2009/2. Y1 - 2009/2. N2 - The major milk whey proteins of the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) have been identified over the total period of lactation using proteomic analysis techniques comprising two-dimensional electrophoresis, comparative image analysis, matrix assisted laser desorption ionisation mass spectrometry (MALDI MS), de novo peptide sequencing and cross species protein matching. Samples were collected at the periods coinciding with major milestones of immunological development in the developing marsupial and in the four phases of milk production, specifically, Days 0, 5 (Phase 1); 27, 68 (Phase 2A); 137, 174 (Phase 2B) and 250 (Phase 3). Major changes in the protein content of marsupial milk whey correlated with the changing needs of the pouch young ...
View more ,The blood of two Australian marsupials, the eastern grey kangaroo (Macropus giganteus) and the Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii), has been reported to have greater oxygen-carrying capacity (i.e. haemoglobin content) when compared with that of placental mammals.Weinvestigated whether alterations of blood rheological properties are associated with the increased oxygen-carrying capacity of these marsupials. Eastern grey kangaroos (n = 6) and Tasmanian devils (n=4) were anaesthetised for blood sampling; human blood (n = 6) was also sampled for comparison. Laboratory measurements included blood and plasma viscosity, red blood cell (RBC) deformability, RBC aggregation and the intrinsic tendency of RBC to aggregate, RBC surface charge and haematological parameters. Scanning electron micrographs of RBC from each species provided morphological information. High-shear blood viscosity at native haematocrit was highest for the Tasmanian devil. When haematocrit was adjusted to 0.4 L L-1, ...
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) has been used in studies of neutrophil morphology and function as a marker for identifying different granule populations. In human neutrophils, ALP is found within secretory vesicles, a rapidly mobilisable vesicle population important for upregulating membrane receptors during early activation. Intra-cellular ALP activity in the heterophils of rabbits and guinea pigs, in contrast, is found only in secondary granules. The neutrophils and eosinophils of tammar wallabies (Macropus eugenii) have previously been reported to contain large amounts of ALP activity when stained using routine cytochemical techniques. To define the subcellular location of ALP in this species, cell suspensions were examined using cerium chloride cytochemistry and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). ALP was found in 2 distinct cytoplasmic compartments. One compartment displayed morphology consistent with a subpopulation of secondary granules while a second tubulo-vesicular population appeared ...
Most urban mammals are small. However, one of the largest marsupials, the Eastern Grey Kangaroo Macropus giganteus, occurs in some urban areas. In 2007, we embarked on a longitudinal study of this species in the seaside town of Anglesea in southern Victoria, Australia. We have captured and tagged 360 individuals to date, fitting each adult with a collar displaying its name. We have monitored survival, reproduction and movements by resighting, recapture and radio-tracking, augmented by citizen science reports of collared individuals. Kangaroos occurred throughout the town, but the golf course formed the nucleus of this urban population. The course supported a high density of kangaroos (2-5/ha), and approximately half of them were tagged. Total counts of kangaroos on the golf course were highest in summer, at the peak of the mating season, and lowest in winter, when many males but not females left the course. Almost all tagged adult females were sedentary, using only part of the golf course and adjacent
The extracellular electrical activity of the stomach and small intestine of a macropodid marsupial was studied using chronically implanted bipolar electrodes. Recordings from the elongate, tubular, haustrated stomach showed triphasic slow waves with a frequency of 5.5/min, an amplitude of 120 microV and an aborad propagation rate of 3 mm/sec. Action potentials were recorded only from the pylorus. These occurred as bursts of six to fourteen consecutive spikes. Shortly after the period of regular spike activity occurred in the adjacent duodenum action potentials in the pylorus ceased, leaving only the slow wave present for up to 20 min. Both slow waves and action potentials were recorded from the small intestine. There was no decrease in the frequency of the slow wave from the duodenum to the ileum. The slow wave frequency was 26/min on the duodenum and 25/min on the ileum. These frequencies were not affected by fasting the animals. Migrating myoelectric complex activity of the small intestine ...
The attachment of cells to a base, i.e. basement membrane in vivo or tissue culture plate in vitro, has been shown to be important in maintaining basic cell function (Shannon et al., 1987). The cells isolated from M. eugenii in this experiment did not adhere to the tissue culture plates but remained as a suspended monolayer just above the base of the plate. However, these cells appear to retain their original morphology, including the presence of lamellar bodies (Fig. 5A,B), and function (e.g. their ability to secrete proteins and lipids). Secretion studies have also been performed on suspended cells from another marsupial, the fat-tailed dunnart (Ormond et al., 2001), as well as a lizard, frog and lungfish (Wood et al., 1999, 2000).. At 30 days of age, the basal secretion of PC was significantly higher than that at 70 days, suggesting that, at this early stage, the cells are extremely active and they secrete very large amounts of surfactant. This finding, therefore, supports the morphological ...
The bacterial diversity of the openings of the urogenital and anal tracts of the adult female tammar wallaby, Macropus eugenii, was determined in order to ascertain whether the physical proximity of the openings of these tracts within the cloaca affected the two populations of bacteria. Terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism (T-RFLP) analyses of 42 wallabies identified 81 different terminal fragments, indicative of diverse and complex microbiomes at these anatomical locations. Subsequent amplified rDNA restriction analysis (ARDRA) identified 72 phylotypes from the urogenital tract and 50 from the anal tract. Twenty-two of these phylotypes were common to both tracts. Phylogenetic analysis of sequenced 16S rDNA showed that 83 % of the phylotypes were unidentified species based on the premise that any sequence possessing <97 % homology to a known bacterial species or phylotype was novel. Thus, despite the close proximity of the openings of the urogenital and anal tracts within the cloaca, the
Papillomaviruses are a group of ubiquitous viruses that are often found in normal skin of humans, as well as a range of different vertebrates. In this study, swab samples collected from the healthy skin of 225 Australian animals from 54 species were analysed for the presence of papillomavirus DNA with the general skin papillomavirus primer pair FAP59/FAP64. A total of five putative and potential new animal papillomavirus types were identified from three different animal species. The papillomaviruses were detected in one monotreme and two marsupial species: three from koalas, and one each from an Eastern grey kangaroo and an echidna. The papillomavirus prevalence in the three species was 14 % (10/72) in koalas, 20 % (1/5) in echidnas and 4 % (1/23) in Eastern grey kangaroos. Phylogenetic analysis was performed on the putative koala papillomavirus type that could be cloned and it appears in the phylogenetic tree as a novel putative papillomavirus genus. The data extend the range of species infected by

Marsupials such as the tammar wallaby (M.Eugenii) have a short gestation (29.3 days) and at birth the altricial young resembles a fetus, and the major development occurs postnatally while the young remains in the mothers pouch. The essential functional factors for the maturation of the neonate are provided by the milk which changes in composition progressively throughout lactation (300 days). Morphologically the lungs of tammar pouch young are immature at birth and the majority of their development occurs during the first 100 days of lactation. In this study mouse embryonic lungs (E-12) were cultured in media with tammar skim milk collected at key time points of lactation to identify factors involved in regulating postnatal lung maturation. Remarkably the embryonic lungs showed increased branching morphogenesis and this effect was restricted to milk collected at specific time points between approximately day 40 to 100 lactation. Further analysis to assess lung development showed a significant increase
Dendrolagus comes from the Greek word dendron, meaning tree, and lagos, meaning hare. Dendrolagus matschiei was named after the German zoologist Paul Matschie, who discovered several other species of tree kangaroo. In captivity, tree kangaroos are particularly susceptible to atypical strains of mycobacteria, resulting in tubercular lesions. In a 1990 survey of institutions holding tree kangaroos, 8% of necropsies involved mycobacterial infections (excluding newborns). For Matschies tree kangaroos, 73 % of reported mycobacterial infections were traced to an avian strain of tuberculosis. Routes of infection are assumed to be similar to those in humans: inhalation of infectious aerosols or inoculation from wounds or lacerations, yet animals housed together with infected individuals do not become infected. As in humans, most infections are believed to be acquired from the environment, not other individuals.. In the past, tree kangaroos infected with mycobacteria were often euthanized without any ...
It turns out that marsupials do not just make more genes for cathelicidin proteins, they also make more potent ones. Two cathelicidin proteins from the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) were able to kill two different antibiotic-resistant bacteria (Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) [1].. A team of Australian researchers argued the Tasmanian devils may have an even greater need than wallabies for strong, broad-spectrum antimicrobials [1]. Offspring are born after only 30 days of gestation and weigh only 0.3 grams [1]. To get an idea of just how small this is, a paper clip weighs around 1 gram. Add to this highly altricial start the observation that Tasmanian devils lead a very aggressive lifestyle (they are not called devils for nothing), resulting in cuts and bites that require pathogen protection. If the calm tammar wallaby makes such potent proteins, what about the truculent Tasmanian devil?. To address this question, researchers Emma Peel and her colleagues began by searching ...
Abstract. The Tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) harbors unique gut bacteria and produces only one-fifth the amount of methane produced by ruminants per unit of digestible energy intake. We have isolated a dominant bacterial species (WG-1) from the wallaby microbiota affiliated with the family Succinivibrionaceae and implicated in lower methane emissions from starch-containing diets. This was achieved by using a partial reconstruction of the bacteriums metabolism from binned metagenomic data (nitrogen and carbohydrate utilization pathways and antibiotic resistance) to devise cultivation-based strategies that produced axenic WG-1 cultures. Pure-culture studies confirm that the bacterium is capnophilic and produces succinate, further explaining a microbiological basis for lower methane emissions from macropodids. This knowledge also provides new strategic targets for redirecting fermentation and reducing methane production in livestock.. ...

BEHAVIOUR AND FOOD HABIT : Eastern grey kangaroos are gregarious and form open-membership groups. The groups are made up of 2-3 females and their offspring with the same number of males of which one is dominant. They exist in a dominance hierarchy and the dominant individuals gain access to better sources of food and areas of shade. However, kangaroos are not territorial and usually fight only when females are in estrous. Females may form strong kinship bonds with their female relatives. Females with living female relatives have a greater chance of reproducing. They are predominantly grazing animal. They are herbivores, but will eat a range of plants including fungi in some cases. With the grasses they prefer to eat young green shoots. ...

Breeding in tree kangaroos is also quite different.. Land-based kangaroos usually fall pregnant within three days of giving birth. The embryo divides to the blastula stage, which is about 80-110 cells, which then sits on the uterine wall until a hormonal signal from the mother (usually prompted by rainfall) causes the blastula to start diving again and become implanted. Then, 18 to 35 days later, the immature, baked bean size joey is born and continues to develop attached to a teat in the pouch for the next few months. This method allows land-based kangaroos to breed rapidly to take advantage of favourable conditions.. Breeding is more leisurely for tree kangaroos, with only one joey born each year.. They are not gregarious animals, living in individual territories rather than in mobs like land-based species (although in good quality lowland territory, a single male Lumholtzs tree kangaroo shares territory with about six females), and come together only to mate.. Gillanders notes that males, ...

The large wallabies, or brush kangaroos, are more brightly colored and are smaller than the typical, gray kangaroo. They live for the most part in the open grasslands, where they feed at night and rest in the day in the dense scrub. The best-known of the medium-sized group are the rock wallaby and nail-tailed kangaroo. The former, living in rocky regions, have as specialized a foot structure as do the large kangaroos. Perhaps the most beautiful kangaroo is the latter, the small, graceful, nail-tailed wallaby, which lives in semi-arid country. It is highly specialized in foot and tooth structure and possesses a horny growth resembling a nail on the end of its tail. The smallest of the wallabies, about the size of rabbits, include the paddymelon and the hare wallaby. The fur, especially of the larger species, is much used ...
Recently, Breck talked with Bennetts doctor about her tendency to want to keep him home as much as possible since its so cold outside and since cold and flu germs are most rampant in the winter. Bennetts doctor agreed that she should trust her motherly intuition in this situation. The doctor suggested that we wait to bring Bennett into public places (like Walmart and the mall) until Bennett gets past his surgery, gains weight and gets through the winter ...

On Australian semiarid floodplains, large herbivores such as kangaroos have a role in the cycling of energy (carbon) through the mechanism of feeding and defaecation of vegetative material. The degree to which kangaroos are vectors of energy within this system is not fully understood. This study describes the stable carbon isotope signature of floodplain plants and kangaroo scats at two close study sites. Kangaroos were found to deposit scats that mirrored the forage composition at each particular feeding site. Scats were 3.94‰ higher in δ13C values at the site where C4 grasses were available, indicating that this grass contributed ~25-30% of the diet of these kangaroos. The difference in diet due to the relative availability of C3 and C4 forage, detectable in the carbon stable isotope signature of scats, is used to demonstrate that kangaroos are recycling and redistributing energy locally, rather than transporting it more broadly across the floodplain. © 2010, CSIRO ...

Whether any of the sthenurines still hopped to attain fast speeds, Janis said, bipedal walking was much more likely to be at least their mode of slow speed locomotion. Indeed, the researchers found multiple lines of evidence suggesting that sthenurines were much better suited than extant kangaroos to put their weight on one foot at a time, a requirement for walking. The only possible example of walking in living kangaroos, Janis said, are anecdotal reports of it in tree kangaroos.. Anatomy for ambling. The paper offers many examples of how sthenurines were anatomically ill-suited for hopping but well suited for bearing weight on one leg at a time.. Take, for one example, the evidence from the ankles of sthenurines. In walking and running animals such as horses and dogs, the lower end of the tibia has a flange that wraps over the back of the joint, providing extra stability to support more weight on each ankle. Living kangaroos, who almost always distribute their weight over both feet equally, ...

good hearing and can move their ears all around to make sure that they are able to hear sounds from all directions. Kangaroo are social animals that travel in groups called mobs that may range from 3 kangaroos up to 100. The male kangaroo is called a buck, boomer, or an old man. The female kangaroo is called a doe or a flyer. A baby kangaroo is called a joey. Female kangaroo give birth to one baby at a time. The gestation time, which means the time that a female kangaroo is pregnant is around 30 days. Newborns usually weigh around 0.03 ounces, and as soon as they are born crawl up into the mothers pouch in which they stay for around 9 months or longer. A female kangaroo can have up to three children at a time. They can have one that just got out of the pouch, one that is in the pouch, and one that is in the womb. However, since female kangaroos do not carry their babies for very long in the womb, female kangaroos have the ability to pause the pregnancy to make sure that the newborn kangaroo ...

Kangaroos and wallabies have large, elastic tendons in their hind legs. They store elastic strain energy in the tendons of their large hind legs, providing most of the energy required for each hop by the spring action of the tendons rather than by any muscular effort.[42] This is true in all animal species which have muscles connected to their skeletons through elastic elements such as tendons, but the effect is more pronounced in kangaroos. There is also a link between the hopping action and breathing: as the feet leave the ground, air is expelled from the lungs; bringing the feet forward ready for landing refills the lungs, providing further energy efficiency. Studies of kangaroos and wallabies have demonstrated, beyond the minimum energy expenditure required to hop at all, increased speed requires very little extra effort (much less than the same speed increase in, say, a horse, dog or human), and the extra energy is required to carry extra weight. For kangaroos, the key benefit of hopping is ...

Theres something truly spectacular about Bennetts pairing with regional Mexican icon Vicente Fernández, Both men are in fine form on Return to Me/Regresa a Mi, backed by gently strumming guitars. Fernández, who sounds on the verge of tears, announced his retirement earlier this year, which gives the song added poignancy. Pop diva Thalia exudes warmth and delicacy on The Way You Look Tonight; and Christina Aguilera is a zippy foil on Steppin Out With My Baby, sung in English. Better are the more experienced voices of Chayanne on The Best Is Yet to Come; actor/singer Dani Martin on Are You Havin Any Fun? and former Los Fabulosos Cadillacs singer Vicentico on Cold, Cold Heart, which soars on a lovely, lilting arrangement.
All animals experience life history events during development that have important consequences for physiology, activity and behaviour. Inevitably, such events also have important consequences for anatomy. For instance, birth in placental mammals necessitates a shift from placental to pulmonary gas exchange, which requires significant cardiovascular remodelling so that the left and right ventricles can transform from working in-parallel at similar pressures, to working in-series at vastly different pressures owing to different resistances of the systemic and pulmonary circuits (Stopfkuchen, 1987). This event is reflected in allometric studies of heart mass growth, with placental mammals tending to show different scaling exponents before and after parturition (Hirokawa, 1972; Mitchell and Skinner, 2009).. In marsupial mammals, cardiovascular remodelling also takes place at birth, but this happens much earlier in development than it does in placental mammals (Runciman et al., 1995). While birth in ...

The kangaroo care method in newborn is a way of protecting the baby through skin to skin contact between newborn and their parents. This review study was done by using the keywords including kangaroo mothre care, neonatal, skin to skin contact and preterm. All related articles were published in Pubmed, Sience direct, Google scholar, SID, and Magiran were studied during 2000 to 2016. Finally, 36 articles were reviewed which were similar according to objectives, method of work, sample size, analysis method, and conclusion. Reviewing the selected articles showed that skin to skin contact among newborn and their parents regulated the body temperature of the neonate, increased the newborns immune system, reduced infection and mortality rate, regulated heart and respiratory rate, increased the growth and weight gain in low birth weight neonates, reduced the stress and crying, increased prolong and stable periods of sleep, and also creates an emotional bond between the parents and the neonates.

Bennetts ANC today was 825 from 420 last week! His WBC were 1.5 from 1.2 and neutrophils were 55 from 35. We are sure thankful that it went up! It needed to be 750 to continue on his chemo treatment. He will start back tonight taking his daily 6mp chemo pills.. Hemoglobin went up to 10.8 from 10.0 and platelets went up to 158 from 108. Glad to see both of those getting closer to a normal range before he starts chemo again. I gave blood today for our local blood drive at our hospital. They check hemoglobin now to get your iron percentage. My hemoglobin was 14.7. I thought this was interesting of how low Bennetts really is compared to a normal person. Well maybe not normal, LOL Normal hemoglobin range is 12 to 16.. Bennetts cough, congestion and running is nose is so much better. The cough syrup really worked well that his pediatrician prescribed last week.. Since he started the maintenance phase in April, He has been in the hospital every other month for a fever or low counts. Anytime before ...

The red kangaroo ranges throughout western and central Australia. Its range encompasses scrubland, grassland, and desert habitats. It typically inhabits open habitats with some trees for shade.[10] Red kangaroos are capable of conserving enough water and selecting enough fresh vegetation to survive in an arid environment. The kangaroos kidneys efficiently concentrate urine, particularly during summer.[11] Red kangaroo primarily eat green vegetation, particularly fresh grasses and forbs, and can get enough even when most plants look brown and dry.[12] One study of kangaroos in Central Australia found that green grass makes up 75-95% of the diet, with Eragrostis setifolia dominating at 54%. This grass continues to be green into the dry season.[13] Kangaroos also primarily consumed this species, along with Enneapogon avanaceus, in western New South Wales where they comprised much as 21-69% of its diet according to a study.[14] During dry times, kangaroos search for green plants by staying on open ...
There is a complex pattern of satellite DNA sequences in M. rufus which are revealed by addition of Ag+ or dye (Hoechst 33258) to the DNA ink Cs2SO4 or CsCl equilibrium density gradients. Six satellite DNA fractions have been isolated; these have buoyant densities in neutral CsCl of 1.692, 1.704, 1.705, 1.707 (two), 1.710 and 1.712 g/ml compared with 1.696 g/ml for the main band DNA. Each satellite accounts for 1-3% of the DNA of the genome. The satellites are located in the centromeric heterochromatin of the chromosomes, in the nucleolar organizer region and in interstitial bands on some of the autosomes, each satellite having a unique distribution. Nucleic acid hybridization showed that six of the satellite sequences are also present in the genomes of the wallaroo and the red-necked wallaby, with sequence divergences of only 1-2% relative to the sequences in the red kangaroo.
Hypodontus macropi is a common intestinal nematode of a range of kangaroos and wallabies (macropodid marsupials). Based on previous multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MEE) and nuclear ribosomal DNA sequence data sets, H. macropi has been proposed to be complex of species. To test this proposal using independent molecular data, we sequenced the whole mitochondrial (mt) genomes of individuals of H. macropi from three different species of hosts (Macropus robustus robustus, Thylogale billardierii and Macropus [Wallabia] bicolor) as well as that of Macropicola ocydromi (a related nematode), and undertook a comparative analysis of the amino acid sequence datasets derived from these genomes. The mt genomes sequenced by next-generation (454) technology from H. macropi from the three host species varied from 13,634 bp to 13,699 bp in size. Pairwise comparisons of the amino acid sequences predicted from these three mt genomes revealed differences of 5.8% to 18%. Phylogenetic analysis of the amino acid sequence

In order to understand the intricacies of X and Y chromosome evolution, we investigate Y chromosome gene content and structure in our model marsupial, the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii ). Using gene-specific and whole Y chromosome probes to screen BAC libraries, we have identified novel genes on the wallaby Y.. Many of these genes are also conserved on the Y in other Australian (Tasmanian devil) and American (opossum) marsupials, but lost from the Y in placental mammals.. This project will focus on characterising genes on the Tasmanian Devil Y chromosome, not only helping to understand mammal Y chromosomes, but also the X.. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - A phylogeny and timescale for the living genera of kangaroos and kin (Macropodiformes. T2 - Marsupialia) based on nuclear DNA sequences. AU - Meredith, Robert W.. AU - Westerman, Michael. AU - Springer, Mark S.. PY - 2008/12/1. Y1 - 2008/12/1. N2 - Kangaroos and kin (Macropodiformes) are the most conspicuous elements of the Australasian marsupial fauna. The approximately 70 living species can be divided into three families: (1) Hypsiprymnodontidae (the musky rat kangaroo); (2) Potoroidae (potoroos and bettongs); and (3) Macropodidae (larger kangaroos, wallabies, banded hare wallaby and pademelons). Here we examine macropodiform relationships using protein-coding portions of the ApoB, BRCA1, IRBP, Rag1 and vWF genes via maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods. We estimate times of divergence using two different relaxed molecular clock methods to present a timescale for macropodiform evolution and reconstruct ancestral states for grades of dental organisation. We ...

Another aspect of population theory is migration. The range of kangaroo movement is probably greatly underestimated in calculations that do not take more recent MT DNA studies into consideration, such as Zenger et al DNA study 2003.14 Zenga et al look at Eastern kangaroo populations, but I note that South Australia uses the NSW model anyway.15 Seeing as the South Australian Commercial Kangaroo Management plan encourages research, I would suggest it undertake MT DNA studies similar to Zenger et als for South Australian populations. Underestimation of real geographical range risks skewing the estimation of population numbers by confusing seasonal or reactive population movement with permanent populations: Pople et al (2007)16 acknowledged that temporal and spatial kangaroo population movement had been ignored in the models and it does not seem to be taken into consideration in the South Australian Management Plan yet. Pople et al did not, however, consider the discrete dynamics within local ...
Studies conducted by the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) confirm that kangaroo is one of the strongest leathers of similar substance available.[5][9] Similarly when split into thinner substances kangaroo retains considerably more of the original tensile strength of the unsplit leather than does calf. When split to 20% of original thickness kangaroo retains between 30 and 60% of the tensile strength of the unsplit hide. Calf split to 20% of original thickness, on the other hand, retains only 1-4% of original strength.[9] Kangaroo leather is lighter and stronger than the hide of a cow or goat. It has 10 times the tensile strength of cowhide and is 50% stronger than goatskin.[10] Studies of the morphology of kangaroo leather help explain its particular properties. The collagen fibre bundles in cattle hide are arranged in a complex weaving pattern. The fibres are often at angles as much as 90 degrees to the skin surface. Cattle hide also contains sweat ...
In light of this version of history, evolutionists expect Australian marsupial species to be genetically closer to one another than to any other species on Earth. The biological basis for this view is straightforward. At conception, when sperm meets egg, each cell contributes a copy of its DNA to the new life, but the process of transmission happens imperfectly, and consequently, genetic errors occur. Thus, each generation grows more genetically distant from previous generations as each new fertilization event contributes more genetic mistakes to the lineage. Therefore, if two individuals share a recent common ancestor, they will possess fewer genetic differences.. Since evolutionists postulate that marsupials share their nearest kinship with other marsupials, they expect genetics to clearly reflect this ancestry. For example, they would predict wombats to be genetically closer to kangaroos and marsupial moles than to cane rats or any other rodents. They would also anticipate a closer genetic ...
Marsupials are often considered similar to ruminants - a class of mammals that have multiple compartments, including one called a rumen, in their stomachs - because both groups have a digestive system that supports a pre-digestion of food by microbes, to process their plant-based diets. And this process, which includes a period of fermentation to break down the foods and release nutrients, causes the animals to discharge methane gas.. Over time, however, researchers have noted that Tammar wallabies in particular produce only about a fifth of the amount of methane produced by livestock ruminants as a result of differences in anatomy and microbial compositions in their guts.. Early research in this area showed that methane emissions from Tammar wallabies amount to 1 to 2 percent of their digestible energy intake, compared to methane emissions of roughly 10 percent of digestible energy intake in sheep. In addition, marsupial and ruminant gut anatomies differ, which influences how quickly food ...
Among the ~150-200 imprinted genes identified in mouse and human, only 20 marsupial orthologs have been examined to date, and eight of these were found to be imprinted. Here we ask, what is the marsupial imprinting status for the remaining 130 eutherian imprinted genes, and are there any marsupial-specific imprinted genes? We profiled genome-wide allele-specific expression (RNA-seq), histone modifications (ChIP-seq) and DNA methylation (PyroMark) in fetal brain and extra-embryonic membranes from reciprocal crosses of two opossum lines, providing an unbiased survey of parent-of-origin effects. Among 68 genes known to be imprinted in eutherians (and having an opossum ortholog), 52 were covered with sufficient informative SNPs to score allelic expression. Only three (,6%) were found to be imprinted in opossum, and 48 display biallelic expression, reflecting a striking lack of conservation of imprinting status. We also discovered and validated eight marsupial-specific imprinted genes that are not ...
This species is slightly smaller than the red fox with an average weight of 8 pounds and a total length of 34-40 inches. The fur is grizzled gray above, white to ashy below, and lighter gray to reddish on the neck and sides. It has a long bushy tail with a median black stripe, and a black tip. The breeding season is from January-April with peaks in February. A litter of 2-7 pups are born from March-May in a whelping den which may have grass, leaves or bark as a nesting material. They are primarily nocturnal animals and are most active at dawn and dusk. They are adept climbers, and use trees to escape enemies. Barks, yaps and yips are the frequent vocalizations. Life span in the wild is 1 1/2 to 3 years.. ...

Woylies are small marsupials. They belong to the rat-kangaroo family. They were once found through much of mainland Australia south of the Tropic of Capricorn but are now restricted to isolated colonies in several parts of Western Australia. They are being introduced into areas which can be kept free of introduced predators such as small islands or fenced national parks. Woylie means stick carrier in the local south-west Nyoongar language and refers to the woylies habit of carrying bark, sticks and leaves in their prehensile tail.

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A simple and cost effective DNA test has been developed by researchers at the University of Adelaides Australian Centre for Ancient DNA (ACAD) and Environment Institute to identify kangaroo species from their droppings. This will boost the ability to manage and conserve kangaroo populations.. DNA extracted from hundreds of droppings collected across north-eastern Australia was used to develop the test, according to a paper published in the journal Wildlife Research.. The researchers established a unique pattern of DNA fragmentation for each species. This eliminated the need for gene sequencing, which is costly, more time-consuming and requires sophisticated laboratory equipment.. The test has already been successful in identifying a number of kangaroo species appearing well outside their known range. This has important implications for conservation efforts and population management.. The more information on the distribution of species, the ...

Most people are familiar with the unique animals in the land down under. Australia boasts the largest variety of marsupials on any continent, including kangaroos, koalas, bandicoots, and wombats.. Wombats are a thick-set short legged, tailless, and somewhat badger like burrowing animal. As are all marsupials, they exhibit marvelous evidence for design.. I shall never forget the time on the ICR Australia tour when I took the American tourists to a wildlife sanctuary on Queenslands famous Gold Coast. We all wanted to see the wombat, an animal that has a pouch like the kangaroo and koala. As with other marsupials, the young wombat is born as a fetus about the size of a jelly bean, with well developed forelimbs which enable it to crawl into the mothers pouch where it completes its development. This, in itself, shows the hand of the Creator, God.. The guide began his talk by telling us that the wombat has a very unusual feature. Its pouch opens backwards, not forward, like the kangaroo. It soon ...
The results in M. dimidiata are PLX3397 chemical structure compared with the range in the whole living marsupial sample (except M. dimidiata) and the published data in Emerson & Radinsky (1980). We compare these indices with those considered as indicative of the sabretooth condition in Emerson & Radinsky (1980), and we will test if any of the indices for M. dimidiata lie outside the ranges of those of other marsupial predators. We calculated a separate series of 14 indices in order to perform principal component analyses (PCAs) to identify combinations of features that distinguish M. dimidiata from other marsupial predators. Each cranial measurement and jaw length. (JL) were divided by the skull length (SL), while each mandibular measurement was divided by the JL of the same specimen. For temporal fossa width index (TFW/SL) the numerator is the difference between zygomatic arch width Selleck Dabrafenib (ZAW) and post-orbital constriction. The purpose of this study is to determine if a ...
Animal sentience is the capacity of an animal to experience different feelings such as suffering or pleasure. The onset of sentience, that is the life stage at which an animal becomes sentient, is a highly contentious topic but its important as it forms the basis of decisions regarding animal foetuses.. Some have suggested that the embryo and foetus cannot suffer before or during birth [1] and foetuses cannot consciously experience negative sensations or feelings [2].. However, expert bodies considering available scientific literature have concluded that the stage of development at which there is a risk of poor welfare … is the beginning of the last third of development for mammals; when a fish, amphibian, cephalopod or decapod becomes capable of independent feeding and during the last days before hatching in precocial oviparous species [such as birds] [3].. In regards to marsupials which develop in the mothers pouch, unfurred pouch young are not considered sentient [4] because they ...

Bennetts goal in designing the sound system upgrade was to disperse the sound more evenly and ensure full coverage throughout the room, as well as provide surround sound capabilities. According to Bennett, We sourced some gear that was higher quality and more on the professional end of things as opposed to the consumer gear the Big Barn Center had previously been using. We really wanted to maintain a high level of fidelity while also providing a level of versatility the Center previously did not have. There is now a main, left, center, right that allows for this. Also, we can now tune the room according to the event and it sounds great.. Bennetts biggest challenge with the project, and one that Masque Sound proved extremely helpful with, was the Centers desire to put in a more permanent solution. The Center wanted to install permanent gear and cable runs. They also wanted to run isolated audio power for the speakers and console. Because there was no theatrical rigging or structure already ...

Last night we got our Coumadin talk. Bennett is transitioning from Heparin to Coumadin (both anticoagulants for the blood clot). His doctors tell him he will have to be on Coumadin for 6 months and then have the blood clot checked. The talk consisted of the importance of staying off motorcycles and having a doctor lined up that will monitor his International Normalized Ratio...or INR weekly after he leaves the hospital. I remember when Jerrys (Bennetts Dads) grandmother was on that rat poison; how hard it was to regulate and how easily she bruised. I always hated that stuff. Now it could save Bennetts life. Im hoping that Bennett can have the blood clot checked before 6 months, that it will be gone and he can discontinue it. While it will likely be a long while before Bennett is back to an active lifestyle, 6 months seems like a long time to be on rat poison that could cause you to bleed to death. Ok Ok, I am sounding pessimistic, but like I said I always hated that stuff. Its ...

I completed my Doctorate at the University of Melbourne, investigating how the uterus and the embryo communicate and interact to control the remarkable phenomenon that is embryonic diapause in the tammar wallaby - the ability of around 130 mammals to pause and restart their pregnancy. In 2012, I was awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship to work at the University of Montreal, Canada with Professor Bruce Murphy investigating embryonic diapause in the mink and mouse, in particular how small potent molecules - polyamines - can control whether an embryo reactivates. Following this, in mid-2015, I moved to Ottawa, Canada to work with Professor Jay Baltz at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and University of Ottawa to investigate the signalling pathways activated in the early mouse embryo to control cell volume and the effect of perturbing methyl pool formation on subsequent embryo development. At the start of 2018, I moved to the School of BioSciences, University of Melbourne to work with Professor Marilyn
No animal has evolved from the kangaroo, and in fact there are any number of marsupials living in the southeast hemisphere of the world including koalas, kangaroos, pandas, and tasmanian wolves. The theory of evolution specifically states that you cannot get a new species from a species that is still living. So you are absolutely right when you think it impossible that these tasmanian wolves evolved from kangaroos. What evolution tells us is that all of these marsupials who live in approximately the same corner of the world evolved from a common ancestor. Evolution does not even stay that each species fits the niche of its eco-system perfectly. There are no fine-tuned species anywhere in the world as that would imply an endpoint in a species development and it has been shown that stagnation in adaptation leads to extinction. What we have in the case of marsupials is a number of isolated populations who through generations of breeding have created the created recognizably different species at ...
